Storyline

Chaank Armaments is experimenting with the ultimate fighting machine which is part human - part machine. So far, the Hardman project has been unreliable and has killed a number of innocent people. The genius behind this project is Jack who lives in a world of models, toys and magazines. When he is fired by Cale for killing a few corporate officers, he unleashes the ultimate killing machine called the 'Warbeast' against Cale and those who would help her.

Alternate Versions

Rated version is the shortest one. The version released on UK DVD is the Director's Cut but slightly shorter than the uncut version released on DVD in Germany. The Japanese Laserdisc version is identical to the German DVD and 131min runtime is wrong (includes the extras). Japanese Laserdisc is the only release of the uncut version with English audio (Digital 2.0 Dolby Surround), the German DVD has a German DD5.1 track but no English track. See more »

God of the str8 to videos!!!
27 November 1999 | by thug_puppySee all my reviews

Everyone is trying to say this is suppose to be a comedy. I have a collection of around 300 movies and alot of them are funny as hell but not classified as comedy. Lethal Weapon 4 for example had more humor in it than Death Machine. This is a great movie with a strong resemblance to Aliens, not Alien despite public opinion. The costume design on the Hardman suit was very good for a low budget film. The camera work was really good especially in certain scenes where several emotions are caught in them. The movie features a good plot and believable tech for the year it takes place in. It does feature some cheesy lines in a couple of parts but other than that its dialogue is strong. Our tree hugging heros are very likable too. In my own humble opinion which of course is the only one that matters, if this were re-released as a theatrical motion picture, it'd be the action flick of the summer next year! This one gets a 9!
